Standards and legislation


Section 508 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) standards was created by the US Access Board to
address access to information and communication technology (ICT) for people with physical, sensory, or
cognitive disabilities. The standards contain technical criteria specific to various types of technologies, as well
as performance-based requirements which focus on functional capabilities of covered products. Specific
criteria cover software applications and operating systems, web-based information and applications,
computers, telecommunications products, video and multi-media, and self-contained closed products.
Mandate 376 – EN 301 549
The EN 301 549 standard was created by the European Union within Mandate 376 as the basis for an online
toolkit for public procurement of ICT products. The standard specifies the functional accessibility
requirements applicable to ICT products and services, together with a description of the test procedures and
evaluation methodology for each accessibility requirement.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) from the W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) helps web
designers and developers create sites that better meet the needs of people with disabilities or age-related
limitations. WCAG advances accessibility across the full range of web content (text, images, audio, and video)
and web applications. WCAG can be precisely tested, is easy to understand and use, and allows web
developers flexibility for innovation. WCAG 2.0 has also been approved as
WCAG specifically addresses barriers to accessing the web experienced by people with visual, auditory,
physical, cognitive, and neurological disabilities, and by older web users with accessibility needs. WCAG 2.0
provides characteristics of accessible content:
Perceivable (for instance, by addressing text alternatives for images, captions for audio, adaptability of
presentation, and color contrast)
Operable (by addressing keyboard access, color contrast, timing of input, seizure avoidance, and
Understandable (by addressing readability, predictability, and input assistance)
Robust (for instance, by addressing compatibility with assistive technologies)
